Compressive Strength Failures: Causes, Evaluation and Resolution

Date: August 3, 2022

Time: Noon – 1:00 pm CDT  

Presenters: Alf Gardiner, PE (Concrete Technical Leader & Principal Engineer – Braun Intertec) and Dan Vruno, PE (Principal Engineer – American Engineering Testing)

Credits: 1 PDH and/or 1 AIA CES LU (AIA Credits Pending)

Registration Link: https://cvent.me/01MEOx  (The credits page on the website will remain “hidden” until credits have been approved.)

Description: This presentation will provide information about what is typically done when compressive strength results are less than the design strength.

The presentation will cover:

  • The reasons for the low strength
  • How low strength is typically evaluated
  • What resolutions have they experienced

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand why compressive strengths may be lower than desired.
  2. Know what should be done once low strength is suspected.
  3. How to evaluate the low strength investigation data.
  4. Understand what can be done to resolve the low compressive strength issue
